You may want some more flow depending on what your keeping and dead spots. Takes some experimentation but your at a good starting point. Just remember you want no spots but you also dont want corals blasted so its a happy medium you have to find.

I know that there are places that my sand is higher than in other parts because of the flow and everyonce in a while I see little tornadoes that form with the sand, is that good or bad?

You dont want to be blowing your sand around. Ways to fix this include moving the powerhead directing it up more away from the sand or my favorite which includes using a larger grain sand. Super fine .5-1micron sand is hard to work with. It blows around easier and is harder to siphon.

For the easy fix just adjust the powerhead away from the sand a little.
